Another one, quite busy taking pics lately, want to get the 300th done before the year ends, so 1 to go after this!
Dutch army ca 2003 - late 2000's.
DPM Bilaminate parka with greygreen winterliner
M90 DPM rain trousers with green winterliner
43rd Mechanized brigade velcro armpatch
44th Painfbat (Johan Willem Friso) velcro chest patch
Dutch flag velcro armpatch
Adjudant rankslides (1 visible)
M95 kevlar helmet (Schubert 826) with 1996 type DPM cover
DPM early Arwy made 1st type modular vest with pouches (C7 magazine, small utility, medium utility, large utility, 2 chest, 3 grenade, 2 types of bayonetfrog of which 1 visible, pocketknife, canteen, and shovelpouch)
Early 90's DPM variation M93 gasmaskbag
Shoulderbag for Munos NV weapon sight
Berghaus Munro backpack
German M2000 boots (Dutch 2000's interim model)
In my hands:
Petrolgreen beret with 44th Painfbat badge
Early Arwy 40mm grenade bandoleer with 3 pouches and belt
Greygreen winter balaclava and shoe liners
This early gen 1st type Arwy made vest and pouches are different than the later Arwy made ones I photographed 2 loadouts back.
The MOLLE straps on both the vest and the pouches are of a thicker but more flexible material, and the camouflage is much more yellow on the straps
as well as on all camo material on the pouches.
Also the green closure straps on the utility and canteen pouches are of a thicker and stiffer material.
Overall they seem a bit shittier than the later ones.
The 2 bayonetfrogs are also different than later ones, with a more yellow camo overall, and the center closure strap is green instead of camo on one,
the lower strap is also green on the other type (which also has no label), and both have the thick nylon green backstrap.
I might make a thread about the different generations and types of Dutch modular gear sometime, if I can spare the time, as it's a lot of work
